Administrative Associates Lunch Workshop

The Center for Online Learning & Innovation and the Human Resources Department are partnering to offer a one-hour workshop for administrative associates that will focus on Microsoft Word applications. This workshop takes place on Monday, November 12 at 12:00 p.m. in Grupp Fireside Lounge.

Most everyone at Canisius College uses Microsoft Word for one reason or another but most of us probably have not learned to create templates or use styles and headings. These tools are easy to learn and can save lots of time in creating documents ranging from everyday memoranda to major publications. If you know how styles and headings work in Word, you can find and use them in many web-based publishing applications.

In addition, we will have a discussion regarding campus-wide engagement opportunities and improving the student experience and increasing student enrollment.

Refreshments will be provided. Please RSVP to
